As we are all on a media based course it is useful for us to be up to date with the media, statistics and what is going on with the evolution of the media platforms.
I came across a site which i found rather interesting, it is run by Jeff Bullas; a blogger, author, strategist and speaker who works with companies and executives to optimise online brands and social media marketing.
He points out emerging trends and overviews what has evolved in the recent months/years.
This page is full of facts and statistics about the what could be called the media that is running our generation.
The site is an easy read and super easy to navigate through.
Jeff Bullas describes statistics of social networks and the effects it having on us; the idea that research shows there are 4.8 billion mobile users but only 4.2 billion people with a toothbrush! CRAZY, social technology is taking over.
Even when it came to wiring this blog i found my self procrastinating. Scrolling through Facebook seeing the first things i ever used to post.
This site is full of facts about multiple social networking sites such as Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and more. It is interesting to read how much media can brain wash us at times and the success each platform is having.
It is important for us as media students to understand the success of these institutions.
The language also used on the site is light and an entertaining read,which makes it engaging. This site is very reliable rather than having to go to Wikipedia where not all the information is 100% accurate.
